. mitt romney out of nowhere it seems, major address today on american foreign policy. take a listen. >> the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it is clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> so we'll hit the speech in depth here a lot on the middle east. but first, let me give you the big picture. as we mentioned, four weeks until the election, and we are seeing a possible shift in favor of mitt romney. check this out. this is what has happened since that debate last wednesday. this is gallup's daily tracking poll. a dead heat here when you look at the different numbers, a dead heat for the race for president, down from the five-point advantage for the pres

mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a lot of anti-american attitudes out there. he senses there is a moment now for him to take advantage and as you point out, brooke, he's going to have t
: that goes, said romney, for the muslim world, from libya to syria to iran. he suggested obama policies in libya let al qaeda get strong enough to kill our ambassador. in syria, romney would get the rebels heavy weapons, despite the administration's fear they will end up in the hands of al qaeda. and romney claimed he would be tougher on iran about nuclear weapons. >> this is a dangerous situation. >> reporter: romney said president obama's making it more dangerous by resisting israeli prime minister netanyahu's apparent willingness to attack iranian nuke plants. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more pros pous middle east, along with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> reporter: romney's remarks, said one expert, are not a strategy. >> he tried to sound very tough in his critique of barack obama today. however, those are mostly rhetorical differences on some of those key foreign policy issues as opposed to actual new tough policies. >> reporter: the president fired back in an ad to run in virginia. >> reckless, amateurish, that's what news media an
the summer, carol, he talked about that foreign policy trip overseas. mitt romney was strongly criticized by some in the palestinian community after he basically said that the reason why the palestinian territory there is not doing very well is because of cultural differences with israel. there is one excerpt from the speech we want to show to you. this is basically where mitt romney is going to be going with this speech later on this morning. he is going to say, quote, we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in t middle east when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate
. this is the stakes at hand. there's two ways to look at this, i think. on the policy side governor romney's critiques are wrong. the president has done a remarkable job in terms of getting us out of iraq, setting us up for withdrawal out of afghanistan, killing osama bin laden, dismantling al qaeda. those are incredible accomplishments by my standard. if this was a republican president, i guarantee you republicans would crow about the incredible record. on the other side, i have no idea what the republicans are doing. if they think they will win a foreign he policy debate with the president, they're sorely mistaken. >> the key is the great contrast. many things are starkly different with governor romney and president obama. again and again you see romney advisers pressed on what are the differences. what changes would you make? what decisions would be explicitly different than the obama administration? i don't want to say you get crickets, but you saw the exchange with the ambassador it who hesitated to say what he would have done with hosni mubarak. >> there's not a great deal of difference. the spe
romney on the issue of domestic policies at that first presidential debate, he's going to be going after the president on foreign policy at that speech at the virginia military institute here in lexington later on this morning. and the campaign did release some excerpts from the speech that we could look at to sort of see where he might be going with this address later on this morning. a few things to point out, carol. he's going to be going after the president as you mentioned just a few moments ago on those diplomatic attacks in benghazi, libya. he's going to be talking about that attack as the work of al qaeda, saying that that was likely the work of the same forces that attacked the united states on september 11th. now, a few other things he's going to be talking about. he's going to be calling for new sanctions, stronger sanctions against the government in iran to prevent that country from developing nuclear weapons. he's also going to be talking about arming the syrian rebels. lastly, carol, as part of his remarks that were releasted by the campaign, interesting to note that he is
are looking at mitt romney's policies and they're realizing that they're not good for women. economic policies. the health care policies. family planning. in florida, of course, medicare's a big issue. women really want to look at candidates that are going to support issues that help women and families and that's what's going on. i think in florida and around the country. >> but do you think because the pol polling is is showing the president is losing support -- that he has been campaigning op are not good for women? >> oh, well, i think that, i'm sorry, i misunderstood. i thought you said president obama was winning in florida. i still think that as women begin to look at the policies more and more, they will increasingly support the president as we're seeing in other states. in colorado, for example, where the debate will be held tonight, president obama has a healthy lead among women, particularly suburban independent women and we're going to be working hard on that. >> i want to get your reaction to the new finding that shows mitt romney leads on dealing with the deficit, the economy, whi
is the comments about 47%. i think that mitt romney, while he has disavowed them, the fact is the policies he has been talking about during the course of this campaign, which are already changing, and we can't really figure out is he for tax cuts, is he against tax cuts, what is he really going to do, i think he needs to take each statement one by one. i think that bain is just one piece of him not telling the truth about what his involvement was, not telling the truth what he has done in the past, and certainly not even now telling the truth what he would do as president. i think that obama just needs to take those issues looking forward rather than looking backward. i think that would be a little bit smarter. >> well, and on to a different issue. let me play you an exchange over the issue of abortion. when you said he accepted the endorsement of mass citizens for life. >> your spokesperson stated you accepted their endorsement. >> shannon, i can tell you again, i did not in any way acknowledge their endorsement nor do i. >> do you accept it? >> i can tell you i do not take the position of a pro
. >> let's move on. >> we are awaiting a major foreign policy address. >> romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> hope is not a strategy. >> but on actual foreign policy romney's specifics were rather thin. >> i'll support the libyan's people efforts to support a lasting government. >> how about iran? >> prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> that's the same. >> this is the same guy who couldn't even go to the olympics. >> he will say anything, he will do anything. >> his mention of russia. >> without question of number one geo political foe. >> there are two kinds of success, initial and ultimate. >> i still believe you in and i hope you still believe in me. if you vote for me in november i'll finish what we started. >> with four weeks until election day, the romney etch a sketch machine is furiously trying to erase every crazy thing mitt romney has said. in a foreign policy speech mitt romney contradicted what he said on a secretly recorded tape. here's what he said on the tape. >> the palestinians don't wanting to see peace anyway, and th
of the spin master in chief. speaking in colorado, he mocked mitt romney's policies, challenged his facts and pointed out differences between what mitt romney said last night and during the campaign. the problem, though, is that a much smaller group of people saw the president's appearance today than the 50 million who watched last night as mitt romney gave the political performance of his life. >> reporter: fresh off of what many supporters viewed as a disappointing debate, president obama is trying to hit reset. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> reporter: speaking in denver, the president argued mitt romney's debate performance was big on style but short on facts. >> the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. last night, he said he didn't know anything about that. >> reporter: mitt romney quickly tried to capitalize on his momentum. >> last night, i thought it was a great opportunity for the american people to see two different vigs for t

election mitt romney delivering a major foreign policy address yesterday making the case against four more years of the saforeign policy. >> doug kelly is live with more. >> good morning. focus turned to foreign policy with governor romney delivering a major address at the virginia military institute offering his severest critique yet of the president leading from behind. >> hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends in the milled east when our words are not backed up by these but spending is cut we have no trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership but of pass civet. >>> speaking in san francisco yesterday president obama touted his decision to pull u.s. troops out of iraq and to pull them out of afghanistan by 2014. >>> governor romney has a different view. he sain a speech today he doubl down on that belief. said ending the war was a mistake. i disagree. bringing our troops home was the right thing to do. every brave american who wears the uniform of this country should know as long as i am commander-in-chief we will sustain the strongest military the world has
it possible for every state to follow massachusetts's example. if you read romney's policies and i have. that's not what he wants to do. ehe's going to make it impossible for any other state to follow the massachusetts model. what you need to know here is that romney paid for his health care plan in three ways. two of those ways were taking federal government money and one of them was a state tax. the first way was this 385 million annual payment that then-senator ted kennedy had to negotiate for the safety net hospitals. president george w. bush wanted to end that which set off a panic and led to romney and kennedy going to the bush administration and cutting a deal with them. massachusetts could keep the money if they put it toward a universal health care plan. that's how it got started. romney and kennedy were trying to keep this federal money. they wanted that money. then the state did two other things. they first covered everyone they could cover in their medicaid problem so they could get the most possible match from the federal government. right now federal medicaid from the federal go
for anyone else. >> it's possible that as romney touts what he did in massachusetts, the policies could make it impossible even in massachusetts. he's not just pulling up the ladder behind him, it's pulling it up in massachusetts as well, potentially. >> it puts it at risk potentially. it's a question of whether the taxpayers in massachusetts are ultimately willing to bear the cost of this plan. they may or may not be but it puts it at risk. >> we talk a lot in this election about what romney's plan will do to medicare beneficiaries, but what happens to medicaid beneficiaries? you cut medicaid by 600 or 700 billion, what happens to the people who rely on medicaid, the poor or children or elderly disabled across the country. >> i just put together some numbers on this in a report and i find that in the year 2022 while the affordable care act will lead to 33 million more americans having health care coverage, romney's plan would leave to roughly 18 to 20 million not having coverage. so this is a huge hit to the possibilities for insurance coverage in america. >> 50 million americans. jonathan
, romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> i know the president hoped for a more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when words rbt backed up by deeds. when defense spending the being cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and our strategy isn't one of partnership but of passive ti. >> on actual foreign policy his specifics were thin amounting to deepening critical cooperation and reaffirming historic ties. susan glasser, your overall assessment of mitt romney? there was no shortage of criticism for the president. what did you make of the prescriptions romney was laying out? >> thanks, alex. you made an important point to say this isn't necessarily a fully formed recipe for what a rom uh any administration would look like. he's seeking to gain a campaign advantage over president obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in many ways it's still not clear whether there i

percent. the president said the economy is moving forward and suggested governor romney's policies would spark another financial disaster. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen and i won't allow it. >>trace: governor romney downplayed the new jobs numbers. he wrote in a statement and i quote, "this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewer new jobs in september than in august and fewer jobs in august than in july. we have lost over 600,000 manufacturing jobs since president obama took office. if not for all the people who have dropped out of the labor first, the real unemployment rate would be closer to 11 percent. we have john roberts following the campaign with governor romney but wendell is covering the president's campaign from cleveland. the numbers could help the president at a very crucial time. >>reporter: they could. the 114,000 jobs created last month was a modest increase but the drop in the unemployment rate came from a different survey, something called a household survey
for a long time to portray, to characterize governor romney's policies in any way they wanted to because he was not saying anything specific about his policies. he's now said a bunch of things, and they will now look at those things for inconsistencies and look at those things where they will be able to say well sate a second, you said x that's inconsistent with y. they will go and start to litigate that because they're going to lose, as mike said, the liberal media is mad at president obama right now. and there's going to be a lot of wailing and nashing on the web tomorrow about this. not at romney. saying president obama failed from the left. and then the middle i think is going to come to a conclusion like we've had around this table. they're going to take some lumps for the next 24 hours and like the obama campaign does they'll go back to the swing states and drill back on the stuff and trying to take romney apart piece by piece and get ready for what is now going to be i think a very very very heavy duty second debate. this is, governor romney won what he wanted which is he wanted to t
's not romney's policies because those don't really exist. it's romney the man that he's -- >> i agree. that's what i'm working tonight. let's take a look at the a promise romney made at the delate last week about keeping his $5 trillion tax cut deficit -- new deficit neutral. no cost to the deficit and cutting $5 trillion mainly for the wealthy. let's watch. >> with regards to that tax cut, look, i'm not looking to cut massive taxes and to reduce the revenues going to the government. my number one principle is there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i want to underline that. no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> paul ryan just days before the debate last week directly contradicted romney. ryan said lowering the tax rates was more important than anything else, including getting rid of those deductions to pay for them supposedly. let's watch. >> what's most important to romney, what would he scale back on the 20% tax cut for the wealthy? would he scale back and say, okay, we're going to have to raise taxes for the middle class? i guess the question is what's most important to him

foreign policy speech, and i want to go to work, so i let's get started. >> romney: i know the president hopes for a safer freer prosperous middle east alive with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense is arbitrarily and deeply cut and we have no trade agenda to speak of, and our partnership is not one of passivity. >> obama: the united states conducted an operation that killed owe as much bin laden. >> cenk: george w. bush and the loser dick cheney had eight years to get bin laden and push took a month off that's passivity. when you kill bin laden and put him in the bottom of the ocean that is not passivity. by the way he we also got into a war with libya and gadhafi is dead. that cost us zero soldiers. shut your mouth, mitt romney. you don't know a thing about foreign policy. so what is he going to do? his main strategy s okay, i got it. let's spit in everybody's eyes and encourage more war. this is him saying that in code words, watch. >> romn
, this is one of the policy options romney was considering. in other words, if you want specifics, don't count on this. howard, this is the problem the more he teases it and pulls back, the more he looks like -- >> the more he teases it, the more confusion he sews and a contrast still with his own situation. the guy who has 100 million ira, which is like unheard of. the guy who like president clinton has said has taken advantage of every legal tax advantage that he possibly can is throwing out a limit of $17,000 in deductions for families that consider themselves middle class, that's a pretty low sealin >> yeah, he's bringing in $10 million in income. steve, you have a big mind about this thing. basically, get your runner on, get him over, and get him in, advance the batter or go for the fences, what would you do tonight if you were romney? >> well, i think you have to go out there and give him rationale where does he want to lead the country? it's unclear and the hour is getting late. he has one of his last opportunities to be able to do that tonight. he has one big thing going for him in thi

will be on monday the 22nd, in florida. yesterday, mitt romney spoke about foreign policy, and laid out some of his foreign-policy principles. here is a tweet that says he discussed president obama's hope strategy. who confined that speech on our video library. -- you can find that speech on our video library. host: susan glasser is editor in chief at foreign-policy. guest: thanks for having me. host: did you hear anything new from mitt romney yesterday? guest: this was his third foreign policy speech, but people are paying a lot more attention now. it was an important moment for him. when he's trying to do, he's not outlining how he would run the country or how he would protect america around the world so much as he's continuing to try to draw contrasts between him and obama. i am reminded of the old line -- campaigns are about accentuating small differences. that is what we saw yesterday. host: do you sense a romney doctrine or philosophy emerging? guest: romney has been something of a mystery when it comes to foreign policy until now. we are not entirely clear. it's not the subject matter he fee

, but the brookings tax policy center took a look at this issue, and here is what they found. under mitt romney 95% of americans making under $200,000 would have a tax increase averaging $2,000 while the wealthiest americans would see tax cuts of up to $86,000 per year. and his claim that he can give the wealthy those tax breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has put his surrogates in a bit of a tough spot. here is paul ryan trying to explain the impossible on fox us in yesterday. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. and we'll get to that. the first half lowering the tax rates does that cost $5 trillion -- >> no. >> you haven't given me the math. >> oh, it would take me too long to go through the math. >> come on i don't have the time to tell you how the math works. then he follows that awkward statement with another statement today. >> i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of any math of this because
little discussion, very little pushback as you say on mitt romney's policies. so it seemed like the president just spent his time defending what he did in the past four years without mitt romney ever having to really explain what he would do going forward. the only thing i can think is that the president was told first and foremost play it safe. don't make any big mistakes. don't do anything big that shows up in an attack ad. you can't do that in politics. you can't show up afraid of making a mistake. you can't play it safe. you have to be on the offense and win the day. the one thing i will say for mitt romney and for the republican party is last night mitt romney very aggressively moved to the center. finally seemed to commit to i am a centrist. i support very closely to where obama is. just slight differences. i think it's an acknowledgment that he really can't run on the far right policies that the republican party has been pushing. it took until now with the republican party sort of staring over the abyss at a potential loss before they would give him that permission to mov
was back in a fighting mood today. pointing out that romney's policies last night were very different from the rest of his campaign. i think what the president might have been wondering is that age-old question... >> obama: i repeat will the real mitt romney please stand up? >> jennifer: will he stand up? unfortunately, the real mitt romney has stood up and here's what he's saying. this is what mitt romney is saying. of course i believe in all of these things! medicare, work for the employed, tax cuts for the middle class. saving homes cross my heart and hope to die. i, mitt romney, believe in all of these things. but i do not like the way the present administration is doing them. so just turn them over to me and i will do all of them. i will do more of them. i will do them better and the doing of them will not cost anybody anything. now, mitt romney would surely win the golden pinocchio. suffice it to say he told so many whoppers, too many to recount here. we're going to air our top mitt debate lies throu

institute in virginia. it's the tenth foreign policy speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region, and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east alied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> let me bring in the "news nation" political panel. chris and michael and jonathan and communications relations director for american cross roads and bobby gosch, deputy international editor for "time" magazine. jonathan, we heard governor romney's speech and saw excerpts before the speech. the hope line is replayed so much. what is the major failure of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what j
." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... how could we ever trust him here? . >>> they're back. the pesky stink bugs. the government said that they have returned in a big quay. many more than last year. you don't have to tell that to the people near linden, virginia. that is where beth parker has paid a visit today. >> stink bug heaven. >> reporter: you can s.w.a.t. them or sweep them. you can't get away. >> there's millions of them. it's the worst thing i have seen in my life. >> reporter: not what he had in mind when he retired and moved to the country. hosted to be closer to nature and nature's too close. >> it's like bug stew. >> can you take some home for dinner if you want.

: with that mitt romney took aim at foreign policy today in a speech at virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the night of september 11. the administration initially blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently officials have said new information indicates it was a terrorist attack. today romney again criticized the president's response in libya. >> i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in so many other countries lie solely with those who carry them out. no one els
of all times. and now the policy poll shows a two point lead for mitt romney. >> so even wealthy people -- would you put a cap on how much they could deduct for example as far as charitable contributes are concerned? because i have heard you mention the $17,000 cap if you will for come folks out there and i would like you to elaborate if you don't mind. >> i don't intend to lay out a piece of legislation here because i intend to work with congress. >> eliot: members of congress are already trying to form a plan of their own to avoid the upcoming fiscal cliff. on tuesday eight senator convened at george washington's mount vernon estate to try to get a deal. one of them was chuck schumer. today he challenged a premise this tax rates at the top should come down. >> it would be a huge mistake to take the dollars we gain from closing loopholes and put them into reducing rates for the highest income brackets rather than into reducing the deficit. the reality is any path forward on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit, or

presidential candidate, mitt romney. he is scheduled to give a recall of a major address on foreign policy. we'll have that for you when it gets underway. it is scheduled for 11:20 eastern and we will have that for you on c-span. right now, a preview of the speech from this morning's "washington journal." host: we want to talk a little bit about this speech today. thank you for joining us. what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? what sort of expectations are built up? guest: this will be romney's foreign-policy speech. it is clearly pretty late in the game for him to be delivering a speech like this. early voting has started in the number of states. he wants to continue some of the momentum he built up last week's debate. it's a chance for him to make a clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it's another chance for his campaign to show that there is more of a choice between him and obama and less of a referendum. when romney pick his running mate this summer, there was a sense that this would be a chance for him to outline things for his own and have a pol
the president is, and that's been sort of part of the romney pitch so far on foreign policy toward iran. this is tricky, bill, because when you do that you have a war wary nation. we've been through the adventure in iraq which people grew very tired of and has been brought to a conclusion, how good of a conclusion remains to be seen. we've got the situation in afghanistan, which is either bad or not so bad depending on who you're listen to, but which has also been going on for a longtime and the president wants to get us out of here. americans are suspicious of foreign adventures. every time you talk about using force the word war comes to mind and people don't like wars you have to be very careful doing that. and romney has a fine line to walk. bill: he is going to say, i. the hopes for a safer middle east allied with the united taeuts, i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. couple that now with what he has said on the trail for a month. go out and find somebody who voted for the president four years ago and try to change their mind. with that now we have this ad ad that is airi

is not a strategy. >> reporter: and calling for a change of course, but offering few new policy details, romney argued that the middle east is a more dangerous place since the president took office, citing serious civil war. romney said he would support our allies against the rebels the potential of a nuclear iran, and last month's terrorist attack in libya, that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead. >> it is our responsibility, and the responsibility of the president to use his greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind. >> reporter: the obama campaign was quick with a rebuttal, they talked about specifics. >> now i'm a professor, and he would have gotten a "c". he gave absolutely no specifics. >> reporter: in california today, president obama appealed to hispanics, dedicating the first ever national monument to a contemporary mexican-american, the late labor leader, caesar chavez. with the stakes higher than ever, the president put a spin on his own debate performance, rallying the supporters at a concert in hollywood last night. >> my understanding, it was
policy in the congress with or without the new president. if there's a new president. he's got romney's arms tied in the same way that the religious right has his arms tied on abortion rights, same-sex, the the way the neo cons have his arms tied in terms of foreign policy. >> one question either the moderate or obama should ask, name one issue in which you plan to buck your party, one issue in which you plan to stand up to house republicans, one issue in which you don't plan to govern as a severe conservative as you described your record in massachusetts before you were describing your efforts in massachusetts as a bipartisan bridge builder. >> would he come out with a sista souljah moment on request? >> that could work. were you a severe conservative or are you the reaching over the aisle -- across the aisle kind of guy? which is it? but you've got to -- as i said before, you have to go at romney the person. it's not romney's policies because those don't really exist. it's romney the man that he's -- >> i agree. that's what i'm working tonight. let's take a look at the promise romne
for the wealthy unpaid for. these are the same policies mitt romney wants to return to. >> chris w 32 days to go until election day, how much of a fine line is the president's campaign walking when it comes to celebrating these numbers? obviously they want to pivot point off the debates and this could be that break, that moment where they can say, look, what we've done, it's working, and now nobody can criticize the president for being above 8% and the one-term proposition phrase they love to throw around. >> listen, it does a couple things. one, it kind of pops to some degree, to say the least, the balloon of momentum romney may have had coming out of that debate performance. at the end of the day the debate about this election is the economy. it's about jobs. and when you see over 5 million jobs being created, we have dug ourselves out of this incredible hole that the policies of the previous administration created, the same policies that governor romney supports. that's a very strong argument. no one i think on the democratic side will go around and celebrate and sit there and say the job is
at mitt romney's foreign policy speech yesterday and the role that issue is playing in the presidential election from today's "washington journal.". >> host: editor-in-chief at foreign policy. thanks for coming in this morning. >> guest: thanks for having me. >> host: mitt romney made his foreign policy speech yesterday. did you hear anything new? >> guest: this was an important speech for mitt romney. i think the third important foreign policy speech he made of the campaign. people are paying a lot more attention now that we're in days and weeks of the election. so i think it was an important moment for him. really what he is trying to do is what challengers are always trying to do when it comes to foreign policy. he is not outlining how he would run the country, how he would project american power in the world so much as continuing to draw contrasts with barack obama. i'm reminded of that old line. campaigns are all about accentuating small differences and emphasizing the heck out of them. i think that is little bit what we saw yesterday. . . and of course there's the classic republic
